Rating Nice Shiny Little Kegs
 
Received the pair of kegs in great condition within a few days. Kegs were nice and shiny and in great shape. Posts were loose but solved quickly with a wrench and some plumbers tape as a precaution. I use for a portable kegerator I built and it does the job wonderfully. - Reviewed by on 7/18/2014

Super deal for a new small ball lock keg. Just make sure to tighten the ball lock valves even though it was shipped pressurized they needed tightening. - Reviewed by on 7/13/2014

Rating Nice size, good price
 
I find 2.5 gal batches much more manageable when brewing, and it fits my beer consumption rate better. They also take up much less space in my fridge than a traditional corny keg. I've bought two of these and the second leaked from the base of the liquid post due to a damaged dip tube. But AIH quickly sent me a replacement with no hassles, and it's been fine since then. - Reviewed by on 6/19/2014

Rating Love them and the service
 
I bought 4 of these because the size is perfect and the price is right. But, It was probably 6 months before I opened the boxes to test them. I had some leaking co2 issues. I contacted AIH and they sent me some new poppets, and a new post for one side. I teflon taped the parts that needed it and used keg lube sparingly. I also replaced all the rubber gaskets just because the replacement gaskets are just a tiny bit fatter than the ones that came on the kegs. Might not have needed to, but I wanted no problems. Bingo! No leaks, no problems. And the service, Jason and Carson answered my email very quickly, and sent me the replacement parts for no charge. You just don't get good service like this anymore. Highly recommended. Thanks to AIH. - Reviewed by on 6/17/2014

Rating Great entry-level keg for the small batch brewer
 
I decided to make the jump into kegging and bought 4 of these kegs when they were on sale. For $60 they are a great deal. I did have to tighten one of the posts on a couple of the kegs, but otherwise they are in good condition. They seem like they would ding up if abused, but should otherwise hold up well. I brew 3-gallon batches, so these are the perfect size for me. They would also be a good choice for traveling, bringing beer to a party, etc. - Reviewed by on 5/23/2014

Rating Great little keg
 
I was worried about all the reviews of the leaking posts.... Well I must say mine is fine... and performed very well during a street brew last weekend... I filled it from a 5 gallon cornie in my kegerator with a 2 foot jumper at 5 psi.... Then placed it into my old 5 gallon round igloo cooler. Used the $20 CO2 injector and a cobra picnic tap....and we had a perfect portable solo jockey box!!! - Reviewed by on 5/19/2014

I love this little keg. I recommend getting the mini co2 also. It fits in a wheeled cooler, and I take it to parties and picnics. Always a hit. - Reviewed by on 5/16/2014

Rating Great keg!
 
Bought for the convenience of size and turning a 5gal batch in 2 1/2gal for testing batches with other flavors. Tested seals and no leaks for me. Totally thinking about buying another one. Takes up a little more room then a 12 pack of beer in the fridge. At the most part I keep it pressurized and keep the keg in the fridge. Pull it out and get a few beers, then re-pressurized before placing back in fridge. All in all a great little keg. - Reviewed by on 5/11/2014

Looks great, had full pressure when I got it. Did have to replace the seals after I cleaned all the process oils out of it. The lid does leak if not snapped on straight and the gas post sticks open from time to time. - Reviewed by on 5/6/2014

Rating Love 'em
 
My first two leaked on first use, I tightened the posts up a bit and they quit. The next two got tightened before filling. I will also do this to all future purchases (there will be more). - Reviewed by on 4/28/2014
